Math has never been my best subject, but with Mr Pieratti, it was. Sure he can be monotonous or boring, but if you are looking for great grades junior year, it won't matter. He's very clear and easy to understand and even when you can't understand, he gives a manageable amount of homework that he then goes over. There has never been a situation where I didn't understand a concept after finishing the homework assignment. He's also not out to stress you out, as many tech teachers are.
He definitely knows his stuff and is super smart. However, he has been teaching for almost 30 years and his motivation for it is very clearly feigning. On top of that he has a very monotone voice while teaching. If you want to do well in this class you will need to be motivated and pay attention or you will fall behind and he will not care. If you do well on the tests, he'll give you a 95 or 100 in participation even if u never participate which some people may appreciate.
I have to say he is a pretty good teacher. Having never taken pre calc before, I was able to able to do really well on his first two tests. He is super clear with concepts and does almost every problem with us. Sometimes his lessons can get really long esp with the double period. But if you just try to stay awake and listen you will get it.
He teaches very well and always tries to help the students. Dry sense of humor somewhat entertains the class through his lessons. He can get very angry sometimes, but usually he's alright. The tests are very difficult but they really prepare you. Make sure you study and do all the reading.
Mr. Pierrati is an amazing teacher! It's obvious that he cares very much about his students and he's also very knowledgeable. Love his corny jokes!
Good teacher. Manages to teach math in a fun way. Try not to get him mad though.
Pieratti is an amaIng teacher who cares about his students and helps them to the best of his ability. Funny at times but overall a teacher you would be lucky to have.
greatest teacher ever. ive had him the past 2 years, and have him again this year. his jokes are corny, but they never fail to crack you up. he also teaches very well, and you shouldnt have a problem doing well on the regents or ap.
the reason math is my favorite subject. absolutely loved his jokes! wish I could have him for another year (:
Class was very boring but he tries to teach. Do the homeworks and pay attention in class and you will do well on his tests/quizzes. Study more yourself if you want a 5 on the AP tho.
Pieratti is a pretty good math teacher, although sometimes he does take entire periods to discuss irrelevant things (mostly things that pertain to failing students). He is very clear, but you need to do the homework (even though he doesn't check it) in order to grasp the concept. I don't think he's boring at all; he is very witty and hilarious, but the majority of students don't get his jokes. He gives a lot of make-up tests too, which is annoying because it holds passing students back.
Pretty good teacher who explains the calculus concepts really well. Not too much hw (usually 10-15 problems a night) and tests aren't too hard. If you pay attention in class then you should be able to get a good grade.
REALLY BORING. I think he tries to teach, and he seems to try to help you understand stuff.
alright teacher but sometime gets really boring. he explains stuff pretty well but sometimes goes to fast
boring but a cool guy if you never get on his bad side. he teaches most of the stuff you need to know on the AP and if you work hard, you're good. Screwed my class over on the Free Response AP Exams
he really is awesome. he works with you until you understand something and hate to fail hard working people.
He's the best math teacher I've ever had. He's very witty and has a great sense of humor. And he's a human being. I wouldn't mind having him again for math next year.
In my four years of Tech, he was the only math teacher that I liked. He was clear and to the point and didn't spend the entire class on useless principles like other teachers. He made hard subjects seem really easy. If you get a chance to be taught by Pieratti, take it.
sooo boring..and he always looked tired. The worst part is i couldn't even fall asleep.If u have him and ur not a nerd..good luck.
Mr. P was an incredible math teacher. Really made me undertsand the material, and such a nice gut too!!!
VEry nice teacher! Mr. P is cool w/ me sleeping in his class. lol since i had advance math with him for 3 terms. got into Calc BC because of him.. er.. sleeping
woah i remember him and i had him 5 years ago.. easy class just do the work...
Very nice guy....but could do a better job at teaching us
He's really cool. Excellent teacher. His sentences tend to drag on, though.
the best teacher.easy grader and really tries to get everyone to learn. i hope i have him for calculus next year.
one of the easiest teacher at tech. a bit slow but still teaches really well and is very helpful
This guy is awesome. Just pure and simple. A real human being.
